Among car owners there are many people who do not trust the service stations or do not have the ability to often visit service centers. They have to do simple operations such as changing the engine oil and filter element on their own. The only problem that awaits car owners during maintenance will be unscrewing the oil filter. It is so firmly stuck to the seating with a sealing rubber that even strong men cannot unscrew it with their hands. In addition, there is not always enough space in the engine compartment to reach the filter housing with two hands. Since you have to change the oil regularly (at least once a year), a special oil filter puller will be a necessary tool. Expertology experts advise you to pay attention to the following points when buying.
Before ordering a wrench, you should look under the hood of your vehicle and examine the place where the oil filter is installed. Then it becomes clear which tool design is best suited for which application.
Applications. All pullers can be divided into two groups.
- Versatile models allow you to service a wide range of vehicles. Working part of the tool is adjustable in diameter, allowing to hold firmly different in size filter element housings. Many wrenches from this group are compact in size, making them easy to get into hard-to-reach places.
- Oil filter wrenches are designed for use with oil filters of one or several car brands. They can have a small range of diameters, and some models are created for the filter in one size. Lacking in versatility, such pullers win in convenience.
Popular designs.There are many different designs of pullers, the most common today are.
- Belt, belt or chain models form a loop that wraps around the filter housing in a circle. Diameter is adjustable and the puller is equipped with a handle for extra strength. The disadvantage of this design is that it is difficult to work in hard-to-reach places.
- Pinched models appeal to simplicity and affordability. The grip can be adjusted in several positions. But they have the same disadvantage – they are not suitable for cramped space under the hood.
- Allen wrenches are bowl shaped with a specific number of facets. Such removers pivot around their axis with a screwdriver. The advantages of the cup design are the careful handling of the filter bowl and the ease of handling. But the puller can only work with one diameter of filter.
- “Crabs” are pullers with a tripod design. The grip is provided by three working tines with a knurled surface. tool can work with various filter diameters. The swivel is done with a crank. These models combine compactness and versatility. But a powerful grip can deform the body of the filter element.
